About St. Domantas Timotheus, Prince of Pskov

Note: Not the same person as Daumantas of Lithuania

Daumantas c. 1240 - May 17, 1299

Prince of Nalšia. Implicated in the murder of Grand Duke Mindaugas, he fled to Russia where he settled at Pskov in 1265. He was baptised as TIMOFEI. In 1266, he was installed as Prince of Pskov, from where he attacked Polotsk, then ruled by the Lithuanian Erden whose wife (who was the aunt of Daumantas) he captured. The Novgorod Chronicle says that he "took Gerden's Knyaginya" but does not refer to her relationship to Daumantas. It also does not specify that the expedition was against Polotsk, merely "against the pagan Lithuanians". He built up the defences of the city of Pskov against the Teutonic knights and founded several churches to commemorate his victories. After his death he was revered as a saint at Pskov. m (after 1282) MARIA Dmitrievna of Vladimir, daughter of DMITRY I Aleksandrovich Grand Prince of Vladimir & his wife --- (-1300). The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. According to the Novgorod Chronicle, Prince Dmitry's "two daughters" were taken to Novgorod from Koporya as hostages in 1282, which dates Maria's marriage to after this date. Daumantas & his wife had one possible child, David.

After the Russian Orthodox Church canonized him, he came to be regarded as a patron saint of Pskov (on the par with Vsevolod Mstislavich). The fortifications erected by Dovmont in Pskov's downtown became known as the "Dovmont Town". A church to the memory of the blessed prince Dovmont-Timofei was consecrated there in 1574. -------------------- Daumantas (arba Domantas, m. apie 1285 m.), hipotetinis Lietuvos didysis kunigaikštis, kuris valdė apie 1282–1285 m., kai kurių istorikų laikomas Mindaugo sūnumi (anot rusų istoriko V. Pašutos, šis Daumantas gali būti tapatus Daumantui Pskoviškiui). Valdydamas persekiojo savo pirmtako Traidenio šalininkus. Minimas tik 1285 m., − tų metų kovo 25 d. jo vadovaujamai kariuomenei niokojant Tverės vyskupui Simeonui Polockiečiui priklausantį Olešnios valsčių (Tverės kunigaikštystės pietuose), Daumantas patyrė rimtą karinį pralaimėjimą ir žuvo ar pateko į nelaisvę. Po Daumanto sekė Didysis Kunigaikštis Butegeidis. Santykiai tarp Daumanto ir Butegeidžio ar tarp Daumanto ir Traidenio yra nežinomi.

Naugarduko metraštyje (jis neišlikęs, išskiriamas Volynės [Ipatijaus] metraščio sudėtyje) tai būtų ne legenda, o faktas. Bet ši legenda - iš XVI a. pasakojimų, kurtų Maskvoje (ten buvo perbėgę nemažai Gediminaičių). Šioje legendoje sakoma, kad pas Mindaugą buvo du sūnūs - Vaišalgas ir Daumantas (Polnoje sobranije russkich letopisej, Sankt Peterburg, 1907, t. 17, p. 593-594). Toliau šis Daumantas tapatinamas su Daumantu Pskoviškiu, Mindaugo svainiu. Vis dėlto, jei ši legenda turi pagrindo (o ji gali jo turėti, nes vienu metu gyveno du Daumantai), tai Mindaugo sūnų Daumantą reikia laikyti kitu asmeniu.
